Below is a list of our available Labrador Retrievers. If you don't find the new friend you're looking for on this page, check out our Coming Soon Labs. We typically have approximately 30 Labs in our rescue program at any given time. Labs come into the program and are adopted daily, so this list is ever-changing.
Click each picture to find what our foster families have to say about each of our Labs. Since we don't have a shelter, all our dogs are in foster homes. Our foster parents provide as much information as possible on the behaviors and traits of our dogs.
The adoption fee for an adult Lab is $300. The adoption fee for puppies (6 months and under) is $375.
If you are interested in meeting one of our Labs, the next step is to complete an adoption application. Adoption information and application is found here. If you have questions about the adoption application process, send an email to our Applications Team.

Jefferson - 2.8 Year Old Male
Jefferson is gentle boy with an amazingly loving personality and generally very mellow nature. He is crate trained, potty trained, and rings ‘the bells’ to let us know when he wants outside.
Jefferson may have sheep or goat guarding instincts in his DNA and needs a leader who is willing and able to establish themselves as a natural authority. He is protective of his foster, his home and the vehicles he rides in. He will alert to possible intruders at the door or nearby and therefore does best with a slow introduction to strangers. He has an experienced foster who can tell you all about his training and needs. Jefferson is looking for someone willing to put the effort into being consistent and firm so that he can relax and enjoy the good life.

Sultan - 2.5 Year Old Male
Hi I’m Sultan. I’m a big boy at 90 pounds so I’m told I can be a lot to handle. It’s not that I’m overly energetic because I can be chill and be a big teddy bear. It’s just that I don’t realize my size and I am sometimes quite playful.
At night we are free to sleep on the dog beds or in the bedroom although I’ve been caught sneaking out to enjoy the couch. Now I just do that when no one is around.
During the day I’m free to roam the house, even when no one is around. I have been quite trustworthy. Yep, I totally made everyone feel bad about making me stay in that crate. It just wasn’t for me. I like to go on runs, play and chew up my toys, and go for a ride especially if I get to stick my head out the window. That’s my fav for sure! I do like it inside but really want to be with someone all the time whether its inside or out. I’m also good at entertaining myself outside. Whether its splashing around in the pool or keeping squirrels out of my yard!
Most of all I want to be with you, and play with you and be with you. Let me know if you think you may be right person for me!
Tramp - 2.2 Year Old Male
Tramp is a big, super-sweet, playful, shy boy. He is house-trained, somewhat crate-trained, and needs some work on the leash. He knows basic commands, and lives to please. He wants to be near you, but is content to hang out on his comfy dog bed, too. He’s very smart, and understands what you want from him quickly. He gets along great with other dogs and is gentle with children; however, he might do best around older children because of his size. If you’re looking for a gentle giant to complete your family, Tramp is your boy!
Jakey - 6.2 Year Old Male
Are you looking for a tall, dark, and handsome companion? If so, let me introduce myself. My name is Jakey. I am a 95 lb, hunk of sweetness. I love to be around people and get along well with my 4 legged foster sister. I am learning what it means to live in a house. Prior to rescue, I had spent my life stuck in the backyard. I am really learning to love the comforts of a home and family.
I am nearly done with my 30 days of rest. Woo hoo!! I can’t wait to go for a walk and play tug-o-war with the rope toys. For the past month, I have been recovering from these pesky things called heartworms. I’ve been spending my days lounging in my crate or on my dog bed. After my rest period is complete, I’ll be ready to find my fur-ever home.
From Jakey’s foster mom: Jakey is a big, handsome boy. Since he had been a “backyard dog”, Jakey has been learning how to live in a house. He is smart and learns quickly. In just over a week he learned to ring the bell on the back door to let us know when he needs to go outside. Sometimes he rings it when he wants attention. He has trained us to respond to the bell. When he first arrived at our house, the crate made him very anxious. We worked with him to slowly get him comfortable in the crate. Now he will go sleep in his crate even when we’re home.
Initially, Jakey seemed to “guard” his toys & bones from other dogs. To prevent any issues between him and his foster sister, we introduced toys slowly. We haven’t had any trouble. He is happy to sit right by her while chewing on his favorite toys.
He will do best in a home with a laid back dog who can keep him company when his humans leave. He has done very well with the children that he has met. He really is a gentle giant who just wants to be loved. He would love a fur-ever home where he will go on leisurely walks and get lots of love and affection.
Goldfish - 1.9 Year Old Male
Goldfish is a handsome yellow boy who weighs 78 pounds. He is potty trained, goes nicely into his crate and rides well in the car. He sleeps comfortably in the crate each night beside our bed with no issues and randomly goes into the crate during the day just to lay down. He does bark and whine some when he is placed in the crate and we leave the house but we are working on this and he is getting much better.
He is very eager to learn and does well with the basic commands (sit, down, stay), especially when treats are involved. He walks well on the leash until he spots a rabbit and then he is ready to give chase. He loves to play with other dogs and gets along well with people. Goldfish is very affectionate and loves to curl up on your lap to cuddle. He likes all of his chew toys and loves to chase the Kong out in the yard. We are still working on him to actually drop the Kong when he brings it back instead of wanting to play tug of war!
The ideal family for Goldfish will be active, willing to exercise him daily and continue to work on his training. Goldfish has the sweetest personality and is looking for his forever family.
Sandra - 1.1 Year Old Female
Sandra is a sweet girl that is quiet and gentle natured. She wants nothing more than to enjoy life with her people. Living with other dogs in her foster home has been a good experience for her. It's likely that her prior home had no other dogs and she would be happiest in a home where she wasn’t forced to share the attention of her people with another dog(s). However, she will still be social in public as she has no issues with others.
Sandra will stay quietly in her crate and be ever so happy to see you when you come home. In her foster home, the most she has been left is 4 hours. She loves the independence of the dog door and will go outside just to check out the sunshine and get some fresh air! While she loves to run around the pool as the others swim, she obviously has no desire to get in on her own. This pretty girl appears to be devoid of the crazy retrieving gene and instead loves to steal the toy and start a game of “chase me”. If you are looking to adopt a companion that will be an integral part of your life with lots of love and cuddles, then Sandra is ready and waiting to become your girl.
Poe - 1.1 Year Old Male
Poe is a sweet, loving 60 lbs boy! He loves retrieving his ball and playing with his two and four legged siblings! He brings you his toys to play with him when he is looking for fun. He’s probably better with older kids and adults rather than young kids as he is still young and learning. He’ll put his paws in the pool but won’t jump in. He would probably swim if you want him in pool with you and work with him a little.
Poe is potty and crate trained. He was surrendered by his owners because he kept climbing their chain link fence. There were just too many temptations on the other side of that fence! He has done well with a wood fence but he needs to be watched while outside until he is comfortable in his new home. Poe is super smart and learns routines quick. He knows many commands-sit, stay, shake, lay down, no, and drop (to drop the ball). He’ll be a great dog for a family willing to work on his outside manners because he’s got down all the in house stuff. Poe is waiting for you to realize what a great guy is is!
Counte - 2.1 Year Old Male
Counte is a beautiful chocolate boy. He is potty trained, crate trained and rides great in a vehicle. He gets along well with other dogs and loves people. Counte does pull some on the leash when he’s chasing grasshoppers or if he spots a rabbit, but otherwise he walks well on the leash. He does like to pick up socks or shoes, if he finds them, so it is important to keep the closet doors closed and remove that temptation. He sleeps nicely through the night in his crate next to our bed. He has the energy of a typical 2-year old Lab and would benefit from a home with a nice yard to play in and owners who will take him for walks to burn off that extra energy. While he does like to sit near the pool as others swim, he has no desire to go into the pool. He has learned the basic sit and stay commands. This handsome boy is affectionate, smart and very eager to learn, especially when treats are involved.
Baylee - 6.4 Year Old Female
Hi I’m Baylee and foster mom calls me her sweet chocolate chunk. I spent my first 6 years with a family that really loved me but couldn’t care for me anymore so now I’m looking for a new forever home. I’m a happy girl and they say I’m full of personality. I’m not sure what that means all I know is I love life and being with my family. Yes, I’m a velcro dog. I’ve got some life experience so I know how to go potty outside and go in my crate. I love the treats and all food really, so if you leave any out I promise I will let you know if I like it. But it also motivates me, I know sit, down, wait and I’m learning to walk nicely on a leash.
The world out there is so exciting I just want to take it all in at once. Don’t let my age fool you, I’ve got a lot of energy and I like to play fetch, take walks and play with my foster sister.The cats here won’t play with me so I just let them be. Exercise is necessary for me, I’ve got a few pounds to lose, from all those counter treats I mentioned.
I’m really excited to find my new family and start my new life. I’m most comfortable with structure and boundaries and someone to show me the rules so I can be the best version of me. And because I’m a high energy girl, older kids and adults would be the best kind of family for me. I will love you to the moon and back and promise to keep you entertained, so if you need a sweet chocolate chunk in your life, add me to your list.
Zera - 2.8 Month Old Female
Zera, meaning “new beginnings”, has done just that. Not once, but twice - once from being dumped and once from parvo! But Zera is now fully recovered from her past and ready to start her best life.
Zera learns so fast and in a week has declared her distain for potty pads and love of going outside!! She has also learned to use the doggy door and take herself outside when she needs to go. For such a young girl, she might be declared a potty prodigy! In addition, she is learning come, sit and how to walk on a leash. Her love of treats is a strong motivation for her steady and rapid training progress.
She loves playing with the other resident dogs, which are all adults labs, and loves when the larger dogs dragging her around the floor while playing tug.
Zera enjoys laying on your lap (or chest) and giving kisses and she’s quite the little snuggler. She loves being outside, playing in the water (kiddie pool), and exploring her outside world with all the fun wonders of sticks, rocks, leaves, etc.
She goes to bed very nicely at night, but when the house starts to get active in the morning sheis more than ready to join in.
When no one is home, she stays in the pen with a Kong, busy bone or something else to help keep herself busy. Most of the time she will happily stay continent. She has learned to leave certain things alone, like cords and furniture, but is still too young to be left for an extended amount of time loose in a house. Zera needs YOU to get her on to her forever home and her best possible future!

Mia - 4.9 Year Old Female
Mia is a wonderful girl that gets along with other dogs and children. She is a very happy girl and as a result, her very happy tail wags a lot! Being as it's a good tail, it can be a little strong for smaller children. She is best recommended for children over 6 years of age and for a home without cats. Mia is not bad with cats, but she is a little more curious than most cats care for. Mia would love a home with a pool and a pal to play with. Her former family didn't have time for her and as a result, she has gained some weight. The pool, the pal and your special touch will be important to help her at her best happy self! Who is up for a sweet girl that just wants to have some summer fun!
The Duke Of Earl - 7.1 Year Old Male
Update: The Duke of Earl is currently with a trainer who is working with him on his leash skills and basic manners.
Hello! I’d like you to meet The Duke of Earl (that’s ME)! I am hanging out with a wonderful DFW Lab Rescue foster, in search of my new “Kingdom”, or maybe “Dukedom”!
Let me tell you about myself… and then if you like what you hear, I’d love to meet YOU!
I am a big, strong boy. Hey, no one cared to work with me before, so I didn’t know much about this leash thing. My foster mom has been working with me on a leash, and I’ve made great improvements! If you would take me to further training, I would love this and I’d work very hard for you because I love to make you happy. (In return, I’ll teach YOU how to chase squirrels… fair trade, right?)
I love to play with a tennis ball. I am a good “crusher”, haha! I am a generally mellow fellow, and have been called a couch potato (hey, is that FOOD?)
I come in very handy if you want to scare away door to door salesmen… I will protect you and tell them to go away! No one will break in to your home while I’m on duty! Who needs a “No Solicitors” sign? I don’t like crates, but I have been very good in my foster home. I know where to do my business and will not bother your stuff. I wouldn’t mind some toys of my own, though!
I have learned to sit and take my food like a gentleman. I love humans, even kids who will give me scratches and belly rubs. I might accidently knock over little ones, though… I do not beg from your table at dinner time, but I may sneak a peek on the counter if you leave something up there that looks interesting to me (I may or may not have obtained bread in this manner…).
I wouldn’t necessarily mind another dog around. I would prefer a passive, submissive friend as there are some things I prefer not to share (rawhides, toys, food, water while I'm drinking). I have played with a puppy at my foster home but when I’m done I just go hang out and rest! I just need a slow introduction to another dog and to know that it will not hurt me, then I will be fine. (My foster mom can tell you about that in more detail… she’s GOOD)!
I love to chase squirrels… hey, what self-respecting Lab doesn’t? I LOVE peanut butter, too.
I am looking forward to finding that special family to love; you won’t find a more loyal friend than me. You just gotta appreciate the big guys! We’re just softies…
Love, Duke (THE Duke of Earl)
Soloman - 3 Year Old Male
Soloman is looking for an experienced owner or family with kids that are comfortable and confident with large dogs. He will do best in a secure environment with moderate exercise and crate time as well. He loves other dogs but could be by himself as well. He is very well behaved, walks great on leash, kennels nicely and knows a lot of obedience commands. He will make a great family member!!
Addie - 4.4 Year Old Female
Addie's foster family has qualified to adopt her and has been approved. She will move directly to Adoption Pending.
Lucky Girl - 7.1 Month Old Female
Lucky Girl is full of the fun and adventure of a young Labrador. She loves new things and has almost boundless energy with which to explore it all. Lucky Girl is as smart as she is cute and is quickly picking up on commands. We’ve been working on puppy basics like sit, down, off, leave it, and walking on a leash – everything a young Lab needs. She is crate trained and may whine just a bit, but quickly settles down, especially if she is tired. So far, her favorite pastimes are chewing on sticks, chasing the ball or playing keep away from her foster sisters. Lucky Girl is definitely all puppy, so she will need a home where someone will follow through on her training. It would probably be best if she is in an active home with older than toddler-aged children, just because she is young and still likes to jump up on people. Lucky Girl is a super excited, fun-loving puppy who will grow into an amazing dog with proper guidance.
DeeDee - 2.2 Year Old Female
Hi everyone, my name is Dee Dee and I am a two year old bundle of energy. I had these pesky things called heat worms but am almost done with my 30 days of rest! I am very intelligent and am very eager to learn, and do well with the basic commands (sit, down, stay.) I love all my toys from tug ropes to Nylabones and squeaky stuffed animals. You might catch me trying to chew on something I'm not supposed to but I stop immediately once you let me know or you distract me with an appropriate toy!
From Dee Dee's foster mom: Dee Dee’s enthusiasm will require patience from her forever family. Although she is still outgrowing being little bit “mouthy” and will require continued training. Because of this, Dee Dee would likely be best in a home without small children. She loves to give kisses to the people (and dogs) she loves. She is by nature very energetic, but once she has burned off her energy she is relaxed for the rest of the day. She will fetch tennis balls until exhaustion.
Dee Dee loves to cuddle, and she has a very soft coat. She gets along great with other dogs although she does not fully grasp that her foster sister is her “senior”. She takes her toys and “barges in” for attention if she is being petted. Dee Dee is comfortable with her crate and rides well in the car. She is house trained and she uses a dog door. She is getting better on the leash, but she will pull when excited in the vicinity of the dog park.
Dee Dee says: I am just a sweet girl that loves to be near my people and get tummy rubs as much as possible. I will be ready to meet my matches soon so put me on your list and maybe you will be my forever home!
Eve - 1 Year Old Female
Eve is a shy, sweet, Labby girl. She currently weights 47 pounds. She was surrendered to the rescue after her owner decided to retire from the breeding business. Eve spent several month roaming the breeder's farm with her brother and received little interaction with humans. As a result, she is very shy but has gradually gained confidence while with her foster family. Eve will need a family that is patient and willing to work with her to gain more confidence. Eve is super smart and learned how to use the dog door her first day at her foster family's house. She gets along well with other dogs and would thrive in a house that already has a dog. Because of her shyness she will need to be in a home without children. Eve loves being outside, splashing in the pool, and is almost 100% potty trained and crate trained.
Adam - 1 Year Old Male
Adam is a sweet Lab. He is house trained. He gets along well with other dogs and is great on the leash. He LOVES to swim and run around and play ball with the other dogs. Adam has a very sweet temperament and is so smart that he learned to sit in 24 hours. Great boy!
Eggsy - 1.3 Year Old Male
Why, hello there. My name is Eggsy, and I am a 14 month old, 90 pound goofball. I know the saying is good things come in small packages, but in this case, bigger is better!
I came to DFWLRRC after my family fell upon some difficult times. I was the only dog in my old house, but I am loving living with other canine buddies. I just can’t get enough of playing with them. Although I am the biggest in the house, I am also the youngest, so they tend to tire out a little faster than I do. Fortunately, I have mastered playing by myself. I thought about trying out for the Cowboys because I can throw a ball pretty far, but I decided my talents are best reserved for my family.
As much as I love playing, I love being outside. I love everything about the outdoors, and the rain won’t even stop me from exploring. When my humans are playing in the front yard without me, I am fairly certain that my world is going to end. Apparently, I am known as a “ball hog,” so the humans have to practice soccer without me. But, I really know they are just jealous of my mad skills.
Despite being relatively young, I am pretty well-behaved. I know how to sit, shake, stay, and lie down on command. My foster mom thinks it’s funny to watch me drool as I patiently wait for my breakfast and dinner. I’m still working on not jumping up on people. It’s just that I get so excited, it’s hard for me to contain it. I try hard. I really, really do, but sometimes just need to show my family how much I missed them.
If you need a jogging partner, a soccer/baseball/football teammate, or a friend, then I am definitely your guy. I promise to give you lots of love and laughter.
Admiral - 8.1 Year Old Male
Admiral is a sweet, special boy and is very, very handsome. He has the face only a mother could love!
He does have hip dysplasia so he will need special attention for diet, daily meds and activity to stop muscle atrophy. His eating is kind of finicky - he doesn't really like dog food too much except for Gravy Train but does loves all sorts of meats - so he may appreciate a personal doggie chef if you have aspirations!
Admiral is versatile and enjoys both inside and out. Though not a big fan of the crate he is trained to lay down on his bed and stay. He loves to be "with his people". He does have quite the "howl" and will howl at the fire station siren going off in the neighborhood. It's hysterical!
He's also potty trained and does well with other dogs, cats and humans. Children are an unknown. He hasn't really played with toys too much. Of course, he also loves to be petted and loved. Who doesn't?
So if you're in the market for a great, calm older dog, Admiral is "your guy".
Marlee - 3 Year Old Female
